I work with anyone no matter what race, gender, sexual preference, age or religion. Although it is out of my scope of practice to diagnose any physical or mental conditions, I would be happy to refer you to another health professional who can.
Your health history and any other information you share with me over the phone, or before, during and after a session, is strictly confidential.
Please take into consideration that most of this work is performed directly onto the skin. So please arrive as clean as possible, and I promise to do the same. Please avoid smoking and eating directly before the session. If you are sick with a contagious illness, please call and reschedule the appointment, because it is very important that I maintain my health for your sake as well as other clients.
Privacy and Draping
Before each session, I will leave the room to give you privacy to disrobe to your comfort level, and I will knock before re-entering to make sure you are ready. The same will occur following the session.
I am able to massage more of your body if you have completely undressed, but your comfort level is most important. Also, keep in mind that you will always be comfortably and modestly draped with a sheet.
If, at any time, you feel uncomfortable with the draping or massage, let me know immediately so that I can alter the session to best suit your needs and comfort level.
Your comfort during the massage is my utmost concern, so please let me know if you need an extra blanket, bolster, or pillow to enhance your relaxation. My sessions include light work as well as deep, but none of the techniques are meant to be painful. If I am applying too much or too little pressure, please inform me immediately so that you can truly enjoy and relax the remainder of the session. Communication is key.
Intoxication of alcohol or drugs is not permitted, and I maintain the right to refuse to work with anyone who is under the influence of either substance. Massage increases circulation in the body which helps to remove unwanted toxins in the bloodstream. However, intoxicants may disrupt this process, which creates an unsafe and unprofessional environment. Anyone who arrives intoxicated will be asked to leave after paying the full amount for the scheduled massage.
Sexual misconduct is NOT tolerated, and I have the right to terminate any session should anyone act inappropriately in a sexual manner. In such a case, full payment will be due, and no future sessions will be scheduled.
Cancellation/ Tardiness Policy
If you need to cancel an appointment, please call 24 hours in advance. Cancellations within 24 hours of the scheduled time of session will result in 50% payment of a full session.
If I cancel an appointment, I will provide you with at least 24 hours notice, or you will receive a complimentary session.
Please try to arrive a few minutes prior to your scheduled time to ensure a full session. If tardy by more than ten minutes, your time on the table will be adjusted accordingly and you will be charged for a full session.
Plan on arriving an extra 10-15 minutes early on your first visit to fill out required paperwork, discuss your health history, and assess your current physical condition.
